Re: Motobecanes- the Cadillac of Mopeds, Lets see some Frenchies!!

That black Moby is sick. I am so grateful I got one to, I paid $500 for mine and it was worth every penny. However mine came with the longer surfboard seat and I altered the side panels, deleting the white. I know, leave good enough alone especially with mopeds, but I had to tone those panels down just a bit. With a little work I got mine running after sitting over 20 years and this frenchie purrs like a kitten, always reliable and ready to ride, and there is nothing like riding a low miles, just breaking in 50V! The way the motor breathes and gets up to the speed is quite magical. Respect to Motobecane and the devotion they put into their product, to make the finest moped they could at the time with the Italians breathing down their neck.

Shane who did you sell it too?

That black one is literally the only bike that's still on my 'permanent collection' bucket list, in planning on selling a few in the spring and trying to track one down.
